    I used some Stunna tonight. I guess I’m used to it. I did seal it in with some coffee oil though.

    Usually In protective styles I just spray in the morning and at night before bed.

    Awww man, I'm set to order the Nature's Ego Fermented Rice Water, but now you guys have me concerned about the smell. Went to the site, and I'm seeing tons of scent options. What's the difference between E.O. and F.O. please?

    I believe that essential oils (EOs) are naturally derived extracted from the fruit/botanical. They're very concentrated oils and often used for medical purposes. Fragrance oils (FOs) tend to be the fun synthetic blends that wer often like to smell -- the kind you would encounter in the bath product stores or in scented products for the home.

    Has anyone noticed any negative effects of using their rice water daily -- hair drying out?

    I created a daily spray with mine. I diluted it and added a small amount of glycerine in addition to other things. I've only used it for a week, but I've been using it daily. My hair feels fine, but I've been warned that it starts off ok then starts feeling dry and brittle after a while.

    Should I use it fewer times weekly. I was thinking of daily, 1 week per month.

    ^^^ Thanks much. They already have so many options to choose from, when I saw the EO/FO, I was confused.

    That's great!

    I started scrolling back to check, but thought it easier to just ask... are you using RW itself or a RW product that you bought? How often are you using it? How long have you been using it?

    I realized that the hair that was cut wasnt moving that much until I started using rice water daily. I took a picture of that spot in April and another one Sep 6 and Sep 17th. Next Month I'll take another and see if the daily of use of rice water is contributing to that area and post a picture.

    I had a picture before but it wasnt too clear/detailed.

    I just went to the fridge to take out my rise water to make a rinse and a daily spray. I made it last month. I will be the first to admit that my sense of smell isn't great, but I think that it's now starting to smell like alcohol... :look:

    I had some rice water in the fridge I was using and topping up. It was in there for a loooong time. I poured it down the sink two weeks ago. I knew I wasn't going to be brave (read crazy) enough to use it on my hair again. There were things in there...:look:

    Depending on what it looks like it could be yeast, not mold, growing in the jar. I got a lot of yeast.

    Thank you because I didn't even know! I didn't want to chance it. I mean, there were things in there when I was using it. But after a few weeks off, when I came back, it had just been there too long for me to get over.

    If there's yeast in there, you should still throw it away right? Or can it still be used up to a certain point?

    To tell you the truth, I don't know. I've been using mine, but straining the yeast off first. Supposedly, that's what you'd do if you were going to eat the food you were fermenting.

    Product Junkie Naturals has a nice rice water collection. She’s currently down on her website until Black Friday. Her rice water condish/shampoo/custard is on Etsy still until it’s gone. She had leftover products listed there.
